‘Duck & Cover’ — #Lyrics To An Old School Hip-Hop Song About Trump & WWIII

This is my really quick attempt to write something like you might hear from Public Enemy. I have no beat, so you might have to change it some to fit a beat you might stumble across to use.

Duck & Cover
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

duck and cover is what I hear in the news
it gives me the blues how many of us snooze
we’ve got a fucking moron as president
he wants to start wars because he’s a punk as bore
the rubber is going to burn when the mushroom cloud is seen
I resent the facts presented to me
but no one seems to want to fight the power
like they did in ’89
they would rather stare into a screen
makes me want to scream, scream, scream
what is going to happen when we hear on the TV set

duck and cover
duck and cover
duck and cover
duck and cover

it didn’t have to be this way I’m afraid
if only the Russian bots had not crushed our hopes
maybe peace would still be in the land
but there’s seemingly nothing we hear
other than duck and cover, duck and cover, duck and cover
when will we learn, when will we listen
maybe I’m just too naive
we all have red blood and that’s a fact
when Trump pushes the button and ends us all
we’ll all be black from our burns

duck and cover
duck and cover
duck and cover
duck and cover

what can we do you may ask
fight the power in the streets
stop being a keyboard fighter
tie up your shoes and do your thing
to march in the streets
demand that we keep life on this planet
Trump is a fucking moron it’s obvious to see
it’s our task to get him out of the White House
if we don’t I’m afraid we’re all going to scream

duck and cover
duck and cover
duck and cover
duck and cover
